"Falsed today private"

About: Hereford County Hospital / Dermatology

I had a lump removed from my leg at my surgery and was told it would be sent to pathology by my doctor who rang and said there was a problem and further treatment was required. I received a letter from the clinic saying they could not fit me in until January and suggested that I went to another hospital. To do this I had to go as a new patient consultation first then wait again until an appointment could be made to do the small operation. I did not want to wait as I was unable to sleep at nights frightened that it was cancer and would spread so I was forced to go private at the Nuffield Hereford at a price that was not easy for me to pay as I only get a small pension,I could not take the risk what does the advert say to cure cancer treat quickly that is a real joke at this hospital and desperately needs looking into. The consultants in my opinion spend far to much time at the Nuffield and have no time for NHS patients. I will like to say that this clinic needs looking into urgently the waiting time is totally unacceptable. I intend to take further action.AJ
